  • They are both nice, but MT has some significant advantages. With your comment-spam problem, I highly reccomend you download the MT-Blacklist plugin … that is pretty much the MT standard in comment and pingback managing. It won first place in Six Apart’s Plugin Competition… or, to REALLY simplify things, wait a couple of days. Movable Type’s new version, 3.1 is scheduled for release on 8/31 and will have Blacklist built into it.

  • I use WordPress on my site and love it. It has a script you can run to import a Moveable Type database, though I imported from Blogger so I don’t know how well it works. If you know HTML, the template shouldn’t be too hard to rebuild in WordPress.
